The Express and Rivermen each held court at home in their weekend home and home set. Friday night the Express used a third period rally en route to a 5-4 OT win in Coquitlam.

Saturday the Rivermen posted a 5-0 shutout win at the George Preston Rec Centre.

Langley's power play put the Express in a first period hole with Max Kaufman and Brendan Budy each striking with a man up just 1:25 apart. Kaufman snapped home a one timer from the slot. And Budy finishing off the rush beating Reid Cooper with a shot over his glove.

Bo Didur wasn't overly busy in the Langley crease having to only make 19 saves for his 4th career BCHL shutout.

Satchel Clendenin added to the Langley lead in the second period on a breakaway cutting in off the right wing and sliding home a backhand between the pads of Cooper.

Harris Pearce and Nik Ponak rounded out the scoring in the third period for the Rivermen.

Jake Brien served the first of a four game suspension for a 5 minute major for a blow to the head assessed for a hit on Friday. John Schuldt for the Rivermen did likewise.

The Express are back in action Thursday night in Surrey.
